BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WDRB) – Dick Vitale and Dan Shulman are in Assembly Hall here on Tuesday night to work the North Carolina-Indiana game, but they're in no rush to leave the Hoosier state.

After the game, they're flying to South Bend, arriving a day early so they can also work the Kentucky-Notre Dame at the Joyce Center Thursday night. Vitale's daughters and one son-in-law attended Notre Dame, and Vitale said he was looking for 11 tickets for Notre Dame's BCS title game appearance.

"Did you know that Notre Dame (basketball) is 40-1 at home in its last 41 games?" Vitale asked.

I knew the Irish were 38-1 over the last two-plus seasons with the only loss coming against UConn last season. I'm sure Vitale has already shared the news with John Calipari.

Vitale also shared another news item: Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, a top candidate for the Heisman Trophy, will visit Shulman and Vitale at courtside for an in-game TV interview on ESPN during the Kentucky game. Be assured that Notre Dame is going to stir up every leprechaun Thursday night.

I haven't seen Te'o hoop, but I'm predicting he is the toughest defender than Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress will face all season.
